See it all: The radiologist will examine all parts of the knee (or at least they should). The knee is a big continuous space on the inside. Contrast paints the inner surface and helps highlight more subtle injuries. When reading an MRI, attention is paid to all the anatomy, not just the areas of pain or interest.

Depends: Surgical treatment for full thickness rotator cuff tears (RCT) depends on age, activity level, pain level, weakness, and tear characteristics (size, location, amount of retraction, chronicity). Your orthopaedic surgeon will discuss these issues to help you decide if and when surgery is appropriate. 33 is very young to have a RCT and I usually recommend surgery for acute tears at this age.

Careful: The combination of these 2 meds can increase depression of your central nervous system. Most likely you will experience significant drowsiness if taken at the same time. Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) (cyclobenzaprine) can be taken every 8 hours and hydoxyzine (vistaril, atarax) can be taken every 4-6 hours. As with all medicines, be careful when combining and consult your pharmacist or prescribing physician.
